Kim Kardashian has finally watched ‘Framing Britney Spears’.
The 40-year-old shared a series of Instagram stories after watching the documentary, speaking in depth about how Britney Spears was treated by the media.
“So I finally watched the Britney Spears documentary this week and it made me feel a lot of empathy for her,” she wrote.
‘The way the media played a big role in her life the way it did can be very traumatizing and it can really break even the strongest person,” she continued.

“No matter how public someone’s life may seem, no one deserves to be treated with such cruelty or judgement for entertainment.”
Kardashian went on to talk about the intense media scrutiny she endured while pregnant with her first child, North.
She shared a handful of tabloid covers from that time, which were all critical of her body and appearance.
“I cried every single day over what was happening to my body,” she wrote. “Mainly from the pressures of being constantly compared to what society considered a healthy pregnant person should look like – as well as being compared to Shamu the Whale by the media.”
“Looking at all of the photos of myself online and in magazines made me so insecure and I had this fear of wondering if I would ever get my pre baby body back. I was shamed on a weekly basis with cover stories that made my insecurities so painful I couldn’t leave the house for months after. It really broke me,” she continued.
“Luckily I was able to take these frustrating, embarrassing feelings and channel it into motivation to get me where I am today, but to say this didn’t take a toll on me mentally would be a lie.
She ended by calling out the media and people responsible for the harmful cycle of reporting on celebrities.
“I’m sharing this just to say I really hope everyone involved in the business of shaming and bullying someone to the point of breaking them down might reconsider and instead try to show some understanding and compassion.”
“You just never fully know what someone is going through behind the scenes and I’ve learned through my own experiences that it’s always better to lead with kindness.”
